Default Charger isn't working

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought a used Blackberry. It works great, but now, the charger won't work. The car charger does work, so I know it's not the unit.

When I plug in the charger, it flashes orange on the charger. There is no jagged line through the battery as there is when I use the car charger.

Thanks,
Susan

Does it charge when you plug it into a usb port?

Go to your service provider and have them use one of there chargers if it works then buy a new charger. Should be around 30.00

If they don't have a BB charger you can also use Motorola RAZR,HTC 2125 or Audiovox 2120 chargers.

RAZR chargers will the most commomly found.

Let me give you some information on the RAZR chargers etal.

The RAZR charger works fine on the BlackBerry but I would not recommend more than 4 continuous hours using that charger (SPN5202) on your BB. The Normal BB charger is 500mAh, The RAZR rapid is 850mAh. This difference over time will shorten the life of the battery. Heat is a by-product of charging... heat kills batteries.

The BB External charger is 750mAh but provides a switching output when the battery reaches 85% the output cuts in half. The HTC chargers are typically 1000mAh (2x the normal BB charger).

If you want an OEM charger for your BB may I suggest the new "Blade" style http://smartphonedepot.com/shop/prod...cat=282&page=1

The Razr worked, but based on the last reply, I ordered a new charger. Thank you for your help. Susan
